AVAILABLE FOR FOSTERING OR ADOPTION
Needs a foster home with big-dog savvy people! Or he can be adopted too if he’s a match for you!
Maxwell is a 4-year old, shepherd mix, 100 pounds, and is a lively, fun, jumbo pooch. After years of medical neglect Maxwell's previous owners just dropped him at the animal shelter, but SPOT stepped in and got him the care he deserves. Due to chronic ear infections that were never treated, he needed ear canal surgery and partial removal of both of his external ear flaps, so that gives Maxwell a one-of-a-kind appearance now, but he is still a very handsome big guy, don’t you think? Thankfully, he is healthy now, still hears great, and is waiting to hear from a new adoring family that he is going to be adopted by them! Maxwell is sweet and loving toward all the people he has met. He likes to play ball and to go for car rides. He is house trained; just get him outside a couple of times a day so he can do his business. He walks well on his harness, knows to “sit” when asked, and he gives high-fives too. Maxwell has a more dominant personality with dogs, but he plays well with other friendly, non-bossy dogs when properly introduced to them. If you have another dog at home, it would probably work better if your dog is more submissive, but Max would also do well as the only dog in the family. Want to meet him? Maybe provide a foster home for a while? Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call 760-593-7768 and leave a message. He would love to meet you, and we’d love to arrange the meeting for you. Adoption fee $175 includes vaccinations, neuter, and microchip. No cost to foster him; SPOT covers all expenses for Maxwell while he’s in a foster home.
